The cases of Ladele and McFarlane v United Kingdom and Eweida and Chaplin v United Kingdom are due to be heard by the European Court of Human Rights in September. The two cases deal with claims made under the Employment Equality Regulations 2003 and focus on whether Article 9 of the European Convention on Human Rights was breached when Ms Ladele and Mr McFarlane were disciplined for refusing to carry out civil partnership ceremonies and respectively provide psycho-sexual counselling to same-sex couple and Ms Eweida was prevented from wearing a visible cross or crucifix at work.
